The body of work that Dylan leaves behind will out shine any grumblings I have w/ him as a preformer. For me the same can be said of Townshend. The Who aside, Pete will be remembered for his songwriting not his guitar prowess. I'm sure not many will agree with me, For sure his shtick involved acrobatics and a fair share of destruction, but at the end of the day, it will be his body of work done in the studio that he hopefully will be judged , ( and not the geriatric preformance at the super bowl).
Clapton has been a hard nut for me to crack, His journey into the blues sorta left me at the crossroads (to steal a metaphor haha). He always seemed to play the stuff in its traditional sense, and if interested I would always search out the source. But his brillance in Cream, Traffic and his collaborations w/ other musicans Duane, Pete, George will more than keep me happy in between his endless releases of blues material.
And Jerry well thats my m*****f****** there and I miss him, It's difficult to listen to his last few years........

I agree with you
Clapton was the first rock concert I ever went to, but I guess 1974 can't be judged against 2005 (the two times I saw Clapton).
